What looks like a simple suicide quickly grows more complicated when police discover that Walker was living under an assumed identity. Maxie tries to fathom why he would choose to end his life where the U.S. highway system ends-and where Maxie just might meet a dead end of her own.

"When you park your car at the end of the road what are you hoping to find? A beautiful place? A chance to escape city life? You might walk for minutes or hours, and after a snapshot or so it's time to move on, but the land still exists long after we've gone. Landscapes don't really need us, so how can we understand them? This book is an attempt to do so, by walking into fifteen semi-wild areas to understand why these places move us. We can absorb aspects of light and sound, the flux of weather and mood, intricate struggles of birds and plants, ordinary moments and forgotten stories, the harmonies we feel and the disharmonies we bring - all the stuff you don't get from a scenic photo. Some of these landscapes are difficult to reach, others are dead easy. They range all over New Zealand and include mountains, coasts, deserts and forests"--Inside front flap.

From the critically acclaimed author of A Very Simple Crime, a chilling story of a young boy coming to grips with genuine evil. A red dirt road on a sweltering day. A car loses control, flips through the air. A woman crawls out, bloody and battered, staggers toward the boy on the bike, the one she swerved to avoid. But he runs away... Kyle is ten in the summer of 1976, and his world is all about secrets-secrets hidden in the maze of cornfields, in caves, in the embers of scorched earth, behind creaking doors and down basement stairs...and in the darkest of hearts. But there's a policewoman at the front door. The Paralyzed Man watches him from a neighboring porch. And no matter which way Kyle turns, no place seems safe anymore...

As young Jake Horner's mind became an increasingly paralyzing cobweb of dark thoughts, he turned for help to an extraordinary doctor--part saint, part evil-genius, a weird combination of faith healer, magician, and devil. And in so doing Jake found himself following a drastic prescription that was to draw him into a strange, compulsive relationship. It is around the startling results of Jake Horner's "cure" and its amazing mastermind--a doctor almost surely designed to become one of the most remarkable characters in modern fiction--that this brilliant, imaginative novel hinges. John Barth is a young writer of unusual talent whose uncanny insight into the dark mazes of the human mind has given The End of the Road a haunting and troubling reality.

The End of the Road is a controversial call to reconsider our American infrastructure, right now before our "stimulus package" is lost on projects with little long term value. As a society, we have not yet noticed the true direction and dire consequences we are forced into by our choices in infrastructure past, present and future. The implications affect almost every area of our lives, from our physical health to that of our economy to our social, ethical and political relations with neighbors whether they are local or across the globe. Whether our goods and services come to us from near or far away.

When five college friends cross America in a minivan to find themselves, they chance upon a road that isn’t on any map. They can’t resist exploring it. The van breaks down. They find a town, a massive trailer park steeped in squalor. The town isn’t on any map either. They find people in town. They’ll wish they hadn’t. The only sanctuary is the Big House–a giant mansion at the center of town that appears to be abandoned, only all the lights come on at night. Inside the Big House is the secret of the town. Inside, they’ll finally find themselves. They won’t like what they find.

Join Kathleen and Michael Pitt as they leave the comfort and temperate climate of suburban Vancouver to spend an isolated winter north of the Arctic Circle. With neither power nor running water, over 40 kilometres from the nearest community of 75 people, this middle-aged couple learns to embrace temperatures that regularly fall below minus 40 degrees. From their home base in a small, one-room cabin, they seek the challenge of winter camping and the adventure of expeditions across the ice. In January 1999, the Pitts flew by Twin Otter to Colville Lake to pursue Michael's life-long dream of living beyond the reach of roads and concrete. By the time the ice went out of the lakes and rivers in mid-June, their lives had been changed forever. Michael and Kathleen Pitt had been paddling the rivers of Northern Canada for ten years. Yet their experience seemed incomplete. Summer is for visitors. Michael needed to spend a winter in the North, where rivers, lakes and muskeg remain frozen for 7 to 8 months of the year. Only by following the winter trail did Michael believe that he could truly know the character and soul of Canada's vast, seemingly limitless Northern landscape. "A mesmerizing account of the North's beauty and the winter Michael and his wife Kathleen lived in a tiny cabin above the Arctic Circle. Well-written and insightful, this book will delight anyone who has explored the northern latitudes or dreams of doing so." -- Julie Angus, author of "Rowboat in a Hurricane: My Amazing Journey Across a Changing Atlantic Ocean" "Personal, humorous and witty, Pitt has crafted an Ode to Winter, sharing with us practical tips of wintercraft, philosophical musings and personal observations on life, the North and the majesty of Winter." -- Alan Fehr, 21-year resident of Arctic Canada and Superintendent of Prince Albert and Elk Island National Parks About the author, Michael D. Pitt Born and raised in California, Michael D. Pitt emigrated to Canada in 1975 to accept a position at the University of British Columbia as a professor of grassland ecology in the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, where he eventually served as associate dean for eight years. In 1981 he married Kathleen, who worked at the university as an administrator in Information Technology Services. The lure of a rural lifestyle, however, with golden sun reflecting on winter snow, inevitably proved irresistible. Kathleen said goodbye to commute traffic, deadlines, memos and office walls in 2000. Michael escaped 18 months later. They now live on 565 acres in the Aspen Parkland near Preeceville, Saskatchewan, where sled dogs Brownie, Grey, Sailor and Slick help them operate Meadow's Edge Bed & Breakfast. Kathleen and Michael Pitt are authors of "Three Seasons in the Wind: 950 km by Canoe Down Northern Canada's Thelon River, " published in 1999.

At an auspicious meeting at rural dating service Table for Six, Rae meets and falls in love with Northland farmer and honest Kiwi bloke Rex Roadley. What lies ahead is not without its challenges and heartaches, and the need (on both sides) to compromise. Love at the End of the Road is a love story with a difference. Rae's charming story is beautifully written from the heart; not only does she find love with Rex, but she finds out more about herself than she ever knew. Woven through her account is the story of the great house itself at Batley and the history of the surrounding countryside. Morphing from city to rural life isn't an easy transition, but Rae simply rolls up her sleeves and gets on with it. Together, she and Rex begin to transform the charming but battered historic villa, Batley House. As their relationship settles and deepens, they pay heed to Rae's 'thundering biological clock' and consider parenthood while Rae, who lost her mother in her late teens and, soon afterwards, her way in life, continues on her path of self discovery. Rae is drawn into every aspect of life on a 400ha sheep and beef farm; from training her cattle dog Floss to slogging through the rain and mud, competing at A&P shows, catering for the hordes at the Maungaturoto Country Club, moving cattle &- including one spectacular moment in which she is mown down but unharmed by a marauding bull! Love at the End of the Road is a heart-warming, amusing and inspiring story about one woman's journey of discovery. It is also a very candid and courageous story; one that explores universal themes and delves into the 'hidden corners' of a loving relationship, revealing all its joys and tribulations. Rae writes unflinchingly about what she gives up, and gains, in her new life with Rex, and just what it means to find 'love at the end of the road'.

A Most Unlikely Likely American Tale Appearances can be deceptive. First impressions can be misleading. People who might seem so different that they could never become a couple sometimes turn around and fall in love. Perhaps that's part of what makes the world interesting. Falling in Love at the End of the Road is that kind of story. A young, unmarried Haitian woman, Isabel Jean, fleeing with her ten-year-old daughter as far away from the dangers of violent abuse as she can all the way to Ely, Minnesota crosses paths with a mature Caucasian widower, Samuel Woolf, who has lived in lonely isolation in his family's lake house for two years following his beloved wife's death. Initially drawn together by her financial and his emotional needs, as time passes, they discover their apparent ethnic differences are superficial; their psychological similarities are profound. However, be advised: while this tale might initially appear predictable and simple, it is, in fact, deceptively compelling and complex as compelling as the heroine and hero's evolving relationship and as complex as the surprising if terrifying climax. Isabel Ebony Jean and Samuel Singer Woolf may well be the most unlikely likely couple modern readers have ever had the experience of meeting. Joyce Davidsen M.Ed., University of Central Florida
